Roark_Bluff_Buffalo_River_Fall_11032013_0561_edit-1024x684That one goes ‘up’ or ‘down’ a mountain, for example, is not a valid description of the activity other than what is relative to the observer. Even to agree to call it a mountain, one must realize that its name is not a description of essence, but rather it is simply a term of agreement, a label, for the purpose of communication and conceptualization. This is a fundamental misunderstanding in the human conditioning, that to know a name is to know what it is.
